Please consider donating food or funds to support this mission. Information is on display in the church narthex, or contact Deb Sadowski at firstname.lastname@example.org or 724-719-0144.

PENTECOST - CONFIRMING A FUTURE OF FAITH, SUNDAY, JUNE 4
Pentecost Sunday, the day we celebrate God's gift of the Holy Spirit. We will also share in the witness and support our Confirmation class as they become adult members of the church. We celebrate the spirit present in these young people, and embrace them as brothers and sisters in Christ.
Wear your colors of flame and fire! These symbolize the flame of the Holy Spirit that hovered over the heads of the disciples on that first Pentecost day.
In June, on Faith in Action Sunday we will sew Dignity Robes.
But first we need to cut them out.
We will hold our Fourth Annual "Cut Up" session on
